Thank you, Roothy123, for all of your advice. We will be in Lerwick on July 30, so I imagine we will be prime time for the puffins. What we are really looking to find is beautiful scenery. After...

Thanks for the bad news and for the good recommendations. I guess it will either be lunch at one of the hotels or a "sea" day. Good thing we are overnight in Monte Carlo with a second day to wander...

We are considering spending the day in Seville when the Symphony is in Huelva on October 22 - a Sunday. I've seen threads indicating that all or most of the shops will be closed on Sunday. That...

Thank you, RLMSLL and cruisr. I appreciate your suggestions for Greenwich and Southend. I had looked at Tilbury, and all I really found was the fort. Frankly, we've been to so many forts, I don't...
